The Dems weak bench

Donald Lambro:

"Something very troubling has been going on in the tumultuous Democratic presidential nomination process that will need fixing sometime in the future.

"The biggest part of the problem has to do with the party's fundamental weakness in the kind of candidates the Democrats have available to run. Let's face it, this has from the beginning been a very weak bunch, which is why polls have shown so many Democrats — nearly half at various points in this political process — were undecided or indicated they could change their mind at any time, any many did in Iowa and New Hampshire.

"With the exception of Howard Dean, all the other major candidates are members of Congress. No legislator has been elected president in more than 40 years. John F. Kennedy was the last lawmaker to make it to the White House, and then just barely over Vice President Richard Nixon."
